Sounds like they are 99% done with just some testing left. Shouldn't be to long now.

Your'e kidding...right? Loved my CAI on my 2010 RS but like others, gave up and went with the Roto Fab. It is a good looking product but I liked the looks of the CAI better.
I gave up when CAI started threatening that they were going to withhold information from us as some sort of punishment. Yea right. My money spent just fine with Roto Fab.

.

1. No one is threatening to "withhold information", we simply do not want to give lead time estimates to customers when we know that there is a lot of our process that is out of our control and can take longer than we expect. People were getting upset when "anticipated lead times" were being given and then changing, so we decided to not say anything until it is done.

2. And as far as "information" goes, we are doing something with this CAI that is extremely unique and has not been done before, so are we going to release details about it so our competitors can scoop up that information and use it with a competing product before we have protected it and released it, no of course not.

3. You already bought a Roto-Fab, that's great and I hope you are very happy with it. That being said, please leave this thread for those who are still waiting for our CAI to be released and want to stay informed. We would like this thread to stay in a positive manner for those who are waiting and excited to get our CAI for their ZL1.

No, tested and back to us from the 3rd party. Now we are testing something completely different and we are actually building the testing mechanism in house, which if people saw it would be amazed. It's very cool, supplies us with a lot of information, and there is nothing else like it in this industry. It will allow us to design and test new products in the future at a much faster pace than we had to do with this CAI, which we are very excited about!

To all following this thread, we are making a lot of progress and are well aware that many of you are waiting for our CAI for your ZL1 which we appreciate very much. After this much anticipation on your end, we want to ensure that we give you something that we are completely 110% satisfied with. We should be releasing details as well as offer a pre-order option for members of this forum soon, and when we do you guys will be the first to hear about it!

Nothing says you can't dance with fat chick until the hot one is finished getting ready.

Nothing says that even though some of us got tired of waiting for the hot chick to get ready (when are women ever ready on time) and went with the fat chick to satisfy our immediate needs (men have needs too). that we won't dump the fat chick in a heartbeat if/when the hot one if finally ready.

Who says we have to limit ourselves to one chick?

All I can say is I'm glad that we are the "Hot Chick" and not the other lol. Trust me, hot chick is going to be looking sexy when she finally comes out to play, and play she will!

Even though I bought a RotoFab (best bang for buck CAI on the market right now IMHO), I'm still curious to see what this final product from CAI Inc. will look like after all this long waiting...

So you're saying you spent your money on a fat chick because she was easy?

I have done a lot of bashing on CAI for their mess up on all of this, I mean its been almost a year since they started R&D for this. And I hope they put out an excellent product, but I think a lot of you are setting yourselves up for a major disappointment.
